Well here it is!

The second entry i've made to this Frikken sweet web site.

A brief history:

This story was written way back sometime in dec of '05 as a three page comic. I was intending to finish all the art and post it on the internet for my friends to check out. I got to the last page, but lo and behold christmas snuck up on me. So I did what most kids of my generation would do in that situation... i fell off the project.

This past nov. I was looking over some of my unfinished pieces I have lying around and i came back across this story. I knew there was a winter flash off 'a comin' so i revised the story a lil and (revert back to first line)

oh, and happy holidays, and whatever


WOW! I go to work and look what happens! Front page! Thanx guys for making that happen. You are all super awesome!


very good

i dont know if it was what you were aiming for or not, but it reminded me alot of the new movie coming out called "The Spirit" the black and white with just about only red as a color that is seen

Nice X-Mas Story.

I found it amusing, and the art-work was very good.
The reason I'm giving 8/10 stars, is because of two things:

1. The voice-acting.
The main character and the "Fat-Santa" Burglar had good voices, but the music in the background made them very hard to hear. You could done better with the sound-editing, so shame on thee!

2. The storyline.
The story had a certain depth to it, and was exciting. The monologue before the encounter with the "Fat-Santa" Burglar was allright, and it fit good with the mood of the film. I wasn't really happy about the ending though, because it was unnecessary to let our "hero" to break his neck.
And what about the main objective? It disappeared as soon he dialed 911, and left the crime scene. Imo, I would let the main character knock out the "Fat-Santa" Burglar (Not break neck. It's kinda too lol'd for a serious short like this), un-tie the girl, receive a "Thank-you" Kiss, take the money (And the girl maybe? :3), THEN dial 911, and take off to the horizon. Yay.

.. I liked the "There's allways a next year" line though :)

Happy Holidays!
